Jermain Defoe remains one of the greatest English strikers of his generation, with the former West Ham, Spurs, Portsmouth, Sunderland and Bournemouth striker 9th on the Premier League’s all-time top goal scorers list with 162 strikes.

These all came before the striker joined Rangers in the January of 2019 but they helped cement the legacy of Jermain Defoe who is now surely eyeing a Premier League Hall of Fame slot.

Fans will vote for their Premier League Hall of Fame inductee via the tournament’s website with Jermain Defoe up against it and several top names vying for the honour.

These include the likes of Tony Adams, Andy Cole, Rio Ferdinand and Michael Owen amongst many others who’ve lit up the English Premier League over the years.

Jermain Defoe eyed for Premier League Hall of Fame spot

The news comes just days after the former Rangers striker returned to Ibrox for the Weekend of Legends clash in Glasgow.

Jermain Defoe rolled back the years to net a double in the match but he couldn’t prevent the Rangers Legends team falling to a 4-3 defeat at Ibrox.

Speaking recently about new Rangers manager Michael Beale, Jermain Defoe has tipped the Ibrox boss and his former coach to have a “special season” next campaign.

“I learned so much from Mick, even at my age with all my experience in the game I was still able to learn a lot from Mick,” said Jermain Defoe.

“I still speak to him now. The players love him. Every training session was good. He’s really clever, loves his football. He’s obsessed.

“It will be interesting to see how the boys do next season. It’s an amazing group with some fantastic players.

“I’m really looking forward to next season because I believe with a full pre-season going into the league next year I believe it will be a special season for the club.”

Jermain Defoe initially joined Rangers on loan from Bournemouth in January 2019 and went on to score 32 goals in 74 games for the Ibrox club.
